Donna operates a small island hotel in Greece where she raises her daughter Sophie alone. On the eve of Sophie's wedding, Donna discovers Sophie has secretly invited three men she believes could be her biological father. Breezy, boozy, and sung to the tune of ABBA's greatest hits, Mamma Mia presents answers to questions of paternity and true family.
